{Ashley + John} July 4th Wedding; Fireworks at The Oxford Hotel in Bend, Oregon

August 2nd, 2011

Ashley + John are a seriously FUN couple!  It all started when they brought out their 1961 Austin Healey for their e-session and we all went rip roaring around Bend through all the elements.  We’d been looking forward to their July 4th wedding because the fireworks between these two is undeniable.  John a fellow wedding vendor and the owner of Pave Fine Jewelry downtown.   In fact, he was working on another couple’s wedding ring the weekend of his own wedding!

These two shared a wedding at a private residence with their closest friends and family and then took the party downtown to The Oxford Hotel.  Their reception had the backdrop of a beautiful mountain sunset but everybody was waiting in anticipation for the sun to go down.  Why?  Because it was July 4th and sparklers were abound on top of the parking garage with the Pilot Butte Fireworks show in the background.  When we got up there, there were people dressed in flags, bikes donning red, white and blue and a lot of hootin’ and hollering.  When Ashley + John stepped into the chaos, everyone cheered and wanted a picture with the bride + groom.  Thankfully, these two aren’t shy!  Being fearless, Ashley jumped up on the piling (yes, in her dress) and they got the best view of the party below.

Thanks you two for choosing us to document your beautiful wedding!   Everyone really enjoyed the moment and came together for you both.  We look forward to continuing to get to know you and hearing more about your honeymoon trip to France!

All the best,

B + W

What would a jewelers wife be without custom wedding jewelry?  Ashley donned an awesome necklace and earrings while also wearing some family heirloom accessories.
